    Microsoft Edge is a new web browser that is available across the Windows 10 device family. It is designed for Windows 10 to be faster, safer, and compatible with the modern Web.

    You can keep track of the websites you visit frequently by storing them as favorites in Microsoft Edge. The favorites bar is a toolbar in Microsoft Edge that you can also add your favorite websites you visit frequently on to make opening them faster and more convenient.

    Hello rumlee,

    Other than updating your Windows and exporting afterwards, you could use the tutorial below to back up and restore your favorites in Microsoft Edge.

    I managed to backup the favorites by copying the datastore folder, but it does not backup the favorites bar in the top only the favorites in the right side.

    Did you use the method from below? It includes both favorites and favorites bar.
